Zuhair Murad Spring 2019 Bridal Collection
April 26, 2018
For the Bridal Collection 2019, Zuhair Murad delves into the Art Déco movement, its architecture, and notably draws inspiration from New York’s Chrysler Building: the designs are streamlined and contrasted by a graphic use of ornamentation.
Geometrically embroidered sequins accentuate each curve and line; featherwork acts as a wink to golden age Hollywood glamour. Both sensual and luxurious, the dresses delicately illuminate the body, and are contrasted by glistening inlays, soft, elongated hemlines, and cape-trails.
This controlled sense of ostentation brings together bustier dresses and boat necks in sheer textiles and corded lace and gentle embroideries for a tattoo-like effect. Breezy 1930s-inspired veils are delicately tied behind the neck and crown the head; Mikado silk skirts are layered on top of dresses.
The collection evolves in a palette of off-white and cream tones, with repetitive circular motives for a trompe l’œil effect. The result, the alliance between architectural rigor and glistening sensuality, celebrates the woman whose future is happening that day.
